Paratransit Services has been providing tranporation to Medicaid qualified recipients in the state of Washington for over 20 years. And as one of the pilot Brokerages at the inception of the Brokerage model being used in Washington state we paved the way, resolved all issues, and we have worked hand in hand with medical providers over the years to find solutions for transportation issues and concerns faced by our clients/patients.
Below are some of the resources, either in the form of an informational link or downloadable file, to make Medicaid transporation more efficient while maintaining safety and minimizing fraud. All files are saved in either Adobe PDF (Adobe Reader is required) or Microsoft Word or Excel (Office version 97-2003 or higher) formats.
